Lucio Fontana / Antony Gormley
An official collateral event of the 59th Venice Biennale.
Bringing together for the first time two great masters of sculpture, Lucio Fontana and Antony Gormley, the exhibition addresses the key themes of space, light and absence found in their work. On display will be sculpture by both artists, alongside a selection of drawings made by Fontana between 1946 and 1968 and a series of drawings, workbooks and models that showcase many aspects of Gormley’s research.
The exhibition – conceived and curated by Luca Massimo Barbero, art historian and one of the major scholars of Lucio Fontana as well as scientific consultant of the Foundation dedicated to the artist, created by Associazione Arte Continua APS, B17 and Galleria Continua and thanks to the collaboration of the Foundation Lucio Fontana, Milan and the FAI – Fondo Ambiente Italiano – will take shape within an extraordinary space: the Olivetti Shop, an architectural jewel set in the frame of Piazza San Marco, designed by Carlo Scarpa and entrusted in concession to FAI by Assicurazioni Generali in order to protect it and manage it for the community.
Tuesday to Sunday: 10am – 6.30 pm
Last entry: 30 minutes before the closure
